Council and Committees

The College is run by a Council, similar to a board of directors. Council sets the College’s direction and develops the policies and standards to ensure the College is protecting the public.

Council is made up of:

  • Ten kinesiologists elected by their peers for three year terms, one of whom must be a member of an Ontario university’s faculty or department of kinesiology; and 
  • At least six and no more than eight public members appointed by the Ontario government to provide the public's point of view.

Council meets at least four times a year and meetings are open to the public.


Committees support the work of Council. Committees include elected and public members of Council, and kinesiologists who are not on Council. View the College's committees.

Role of the president, vice-president and registrar

The president is the chair of Council and Executive Committee. The president ensures that:

  • Council is fulfilling its mandate and strategic goals in accordance with the College’s By-Laws and applicable legislation, and
  • Council members understand and fulfill their responsibilities.

The vice-president is a member of the Executive Committee and performs the duties of the president in the president's absence.

The registrar is the chief operating officer of the College and is responsible for managing the College’s operations. The registrar is accountable to Council and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Supported by staff, the registrar is responsible for implementing the College’s strategic plan and the policies approved by Council. The registrar also provides leadership and advice on the development of policies and procedures that allow the College to achieve its mandate.
